It’s everything you could possibly want from a Selena Gomez interview: 1. Dirt on her upcoming role in Spring Breakers. 2. A quote on fellow superstar/best friend Taylor Swift. 3. Juice on now-ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. It’s wins all around! See her best lines from her NYLON, February 2013 cover spread…
When speaking of her relationship with the Biebs, she had nothing but positive things to divulge: “I’m having fun. At the end of the day, love is such a normal thing, and everyone deals with it. Just because it’s a different lifestyle doesn’t change the meaning of what I’ve been raised on, which is fairy tales.” (NOTE: Keep in mind, this interview was conducted pre-Jelena-split.)
As for her part in Spring Breakers, alongside Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens: “I definitely felt that with my first stepping-out role, I should choose something that I could understand a little more. I was really nervous, but Harmony [Korine, the director] took a chance with me. He said, ‘You live in this bubble, and I’m going to take you out of it, but you have to trust me.’” What does ‘stepping out’ actually entail? For one, perhaps losing some of her tween/teen audience *gasp*: “I’ve told parents, ‘Make sure you don’t let your kids see Spring Breakers‘… I know it isn’t for the younger generation I have following me, but I’m also about to be 21.”
But in better news, you can always rely on the bond between Selena and Taylor Swift: “We both experienced the same things at the same time. [i.e. Break-ups within the same week.] But we’ve never once talked about our industry. She just became the person I’d go to for an issue with my family or boyfriend. It’s so hard to trust girls, so I’m lucky to have her.”
